Another production curtailment announced for Canfor’s Taylor Pulp mill

The Canadian producer Canfor Pulp is announcing a minimum six-week extension of the curtailment of BCTMP production at Taylor Pulp in British Colombia due to the ongoing transportation shortages that have resulted in continued high finished product inventories at the pulp mill.

“Unfortunately, the ongoing rail transportation situation has not improved, and we have no choice but to extend the current production curtailment,” said Kevin Anderson, VP Operations, Canfor Pulp. “We are very disappointed in the ongoing impact this is having on our employees, their families and the community.”

The curtailment extension will further reduce the production of BCTMP by at least 25,000 tonnes.
